Date: Thursday 5th July 2018
Time: 15:30

Robin Lenman :

Love, Death, Art And Money In 19th-Century Bavaria

The world premiere of Richard Wagner's Tristan und Isolde in Munich in 1865, one of the 19th century's great cultural events, was the culmination of a lavish history of dynastic patronage begun by Ludwig I.

However, perceptive visitors like George Eliot noted new arguments were raging about how culture should be funded: by monarchs, the taxpayer or the rapidly expanding private market?

Historian Robin Lenman reveals how this sparked a much wider, international debate about art, patronage and national identity during the pre-1914 period.
